Have not seen those jeans at Blue and Green but will go there next week when I am in NYC. Looking forwrd to seeing the Made in Japan styles. I picked up a pair of Made in Japan last year in London. They were nice. They were most def not 14 oz but a nice weave and great color. The slub looked great. I like the selvage and know 7 threads had to be used to make it. Who else does this??? I went to the blue and geene web sight and see that Paul Smith is using natural indio. What a pain in the ass stinky process that is. They should be $500 just for that. I live in LA and saw some nice Red Ear at American Rag. They were not made in Japan but were great denim just the same. Just for all of you that do not know, a copuple of factories in China can make denim just as well as japan. Most great Japoanese denim makers have set up shop there and come out with exactly the same denim. If it sad made in Japan and was actually made in China 100% of people would never know. Anyway headed to Japan next month for a few weeks and will let yall know what I see in terms of new companies. Yall know the super cool kids are into the Indian/Americana sytle.......... Just what Ralgh Lauren like. I am sure he is stealling ideas form them. Oh, Saw some shit about RRl on the sight being better than Red Ear. I disagree. RRL has a great concept and loads of money for flash but there denim does not comapiar to Red Ear. Not to say I do not think RRL is great.

AFAIK, Ralph Lauren has been doing the Americana thing for a long time, before it really took off here. I wouldn't be prepared to say that he took ideas from the Japanese Americana guys. Actually, I think that the RRL was his baby for a long time, became defunct for a while, and is now back on track again. I used to drop by the old store on 3rd Street in LA from time to time. Lots of interesting vintage pieces, and pricey, iirc. Godmother (of 5EP and on this site) was a designer for the old RRL line.

Funny because I was visiting a friend of mine in Chinatown and just noticed this cool store on a strange desrted street with cool clothing and denim.

Oh shit, I just saw a store called Blue in Green in Soho on Greene Street in NYC. The best denim store in the USA. Go check it out!!!!

The selvage the Red Ear people do is great!!!

The pictures are not clear. Sorry about that. I am not the best photo person. These jean pictures were taken on my Kitchen table this morning. Notice the food crumbs on the table.


dayum, how many washes?

i need to tell my side of the story. so i came across this board about 2 month ago and found out about this red ear thing. so i thought you know, i am sick of diesels and stuff, let me try something completely different. I am a size 32, across every single clothing line to this point. When I went to PS store, the M or the Large will not fit me, as they are so small that I can't close the botton. I finally manage to fit into a pair of XL but the knee area is so tight that i can not bend down to tie my shoe laces. So off the sales guy went and got me a pair of XXXL. I know it is quality jeans and I bought it thinking it will be a little better in a few. That day I wear the red ear out of the store. Drove home and the minute I got off the car, oh crap, my baige cat seat had a blue area of indigo on it. It came out the next day with a $45 cleaning bill from the car wash. That night when I take off the jeans, I found my legs had a mild rash across. Something in the jeans irritated me. So today, I took the jeans back and looked around the shop but found nothing I liked. But I can't get a refund. So now I am stuck with a $340 store credit which I am trying to get rid of on craigslist. I am sorry but I am done with Red Ears.

If you live in Cali there is a law that says that you legally can get your money back if you have $10 on a gift card...

so if they sell $10 gift cards... but as many as you need and say you want cash back.

Sorry to hear that. FWIW, my Paul Smith Red Ear jeans bled (far) more than any pair of raw denim I've ever owned. Red Ear seriously bleeds like crazy. Btw, the bleeding does eventually stop.
